Discover the delights of a sailing holiday…
If you’ve always thought that sailing holidays were for millionaires, it’s time to think again. Getting a group of friends together on board ship and island hopping, partying and sightseeing is a brilliant way to spend your time off. Rather than all booking into a hotel for a week or two and staying in the same place the whole time, a sailing holiday gives you the advantage of being in a different location every night if that’s what you want.
You will also find that staying onboard offers you the best of both worlds, as you can visit some of the most desirable holiday destinations without having to fight your way through the crowds. Instead, you can just relax back and enjoy the ride. If you have never sailed before then it’s a good idea to opt for a skippered ship, which means you don’t have to worry about any of the technical aspects of sailing. A skipper usually has excellent local knowledge too, so you’ll have the added advantage of a regional expert to hand (no need for big, expensive guided tours).
If you enjoy watersports then this is also a brilliant opportunity to indulge, with activities such as waterskiing and surfing popular with groups on their sailing holiday.
Taking a holiday with friends also means that you will probably end up paying out a lot less than you would think… so it’s not just millionaires who need apply.
